Administrative & Technology Team


The Disney Research, Pittsburgh administrative team provides support to the Lab Director and each of our Research groups; maintaining the environment which allows the ‘magic’ to happen!

We coordinate everything from the day-to-day necessities of schedules, sustenance, guests and travel, to the larger oversight needs of budgets & finance, HR management & recruitment, contracts & patents/IP management, and communication with the larger Disney Research parent organization.

We enjoy working with such a dynamic and diverse group and, while our teams definitely work very hard every day, we believe that it is important to have a little fun along the way!
